Help! I want to make your awesome shortbread cookies but don't remember where I wrote the recipe down!
And every year this lovely woman shares her recipe and wishes of love for our family.
I have had a few requests for the recipe and I am sure she wouldn't mind me sharing it. So here it is with my little tweaks:
1 cup soft butter
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup fruit sugar (comes in those little bags also called Berry Sugar)
Cream butter and add sugar gradually. Beat until almost white. (Then I whip it in my kitchen aid for about 6 minutes)
Add 1 3/4 c flour gradually. Whip again once all of the flour is added for 2 minutes.
Roll into tiny balls and squish a little hollow into the top of each ball with your thumb. Put half of a glazed cherry into the hollow.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes
The cookies don't brown up except for a little on the bottom. And good luck trying not to eat a dozen by yourself right when they come out of the oven!
Thank you Mrs. Whitrow!
